Getting Published: 10 Things Every Writer Should Know

Join us at West Orange Library on Sept 6 at 7pm as NJ author Jon Gibbs explains the 10 things every writer should know about how to get published in print or online and how to self publish.

The world of publishing has changed. What with the e-Book revolution, the increasing popularity of self-publishing and the rise in the number of e-zines (web-based magazines), there are more roads to publication than ever before.
Whichever route you choose, there are things you should know and steps you can take which will make your journey easier, help you to improve your work, and (in the case of those looking for traditional publication) get that acceptance letter much faster.  On Thursday, September 6 at 7pm, join New Jersey author Jon Gibbs at West Orange Public Library for a fun, informative discussion on the ten things every writer should know.

Plus, there may be candy.
